Hello everyone! :)

I'm using Thunderbird for many years. Today I had to reinstall my Windows and obviously to set up my apps including Thunderbird. Unfortunately an error is popping up after I filled all of the required information. I restarted my PC. I reinstalled Thunderbird. I'm using the most popular email client in Bulgaria.

Nothing works so far. Screen shots are attached including the provided settings from my email client.

Thanks!

Good day!

After the last firefox update, there was a change in the way screenshots are saved. Specifically, the file names are the same, only for some pages they create them uniquely as it was before. I am sending an example of a name (Screenshot 2024-06-17 a[...]) that is the same for different screenshots and therefore I always have to rename it. Before the update, this never happened, each screenshot had a unique file name, so it was saved without the need to enter a file name.

I use this feature very often and i find it very annoying to create file name and it is very impractical and time consuming. Can it be set somewhere? Or what should I do. I really like this function of firefox and I don't use another browser because of it. I don't even plan to, because I think it's the best browser and has a lot of great features. This is one of them and I'm really disappointed that it got worse with the update.

Hi!

I'm confused by the latest upgrade of Firefox (Version 127.0). It gave me the option to create a new profile or Exit when starting it. So eventually I went for creating a new profile and now my old one seems lost. This is not what I wanted.

When using my shortcut on the taskbar, which I've used for years, it suddenly complained I was using an old version of Firefox. This has not happened for me in decades. I've lived with the Firefox installation on this computer for a very long time and it has smoothly upgraded in the background until now. So what is going on now with this upgrade? Is it a major new version of Firefox that doesn't migrate a current profile?

Hello,

I was editing a fillable PDF document in Firefox, which I had saved repeatedly (saved over existing file) as I was making changes.

After a crash, I selected "recover session" and the document was open but was now empty. Another document I was editing, which was not open in Firefox but was being saved to a separate file, did not experience the loss of data entries.

Would anyone happen to know the reason for this issue and whether there is any way to recover the data?

Thank you.

Greetings support team. The problem is a bit complicated and I could't find anything similar to it on the net, so I'll try to explain in details what happened. One day after opening the browser I noticed that it didn't launch(there was no window). After opening it again I saw that all of my previously opened tabs were gone. After that I closed Firefox and went to check the task manager. I found that Firefox was still running after closing it. I couldn't wrap my head around it and killed the programm. Then I opened it again and got the same results: first launch: no Firefox window(nothing on the taskbar either), secound launch: one empty tab. After that I opened a new tab in Firefox through task manager and my screen "swiped right", I got access to Firefox window with all of my previous tabs, but all the other programms I had opened on the taskbar were gone. Somehow Firefox opens outside my screen on a "separate one" every first time I launch the app, and the only way to switch between "screens" is to open a new tab through task manager or launch a program that was previously active to switch back to previous "screen". It is also impossible to switch between opened windows on different "screens" using gestures on the touchpad or "Alt" + "Tab". I use a laptop and never even tried to attach/connect a second monitor. I don't have another monitor attached via bluetooth or any other means in device manager. I have the latest verion of windows 10 installed and updated. I have another PC, where I use the same Firefox with the same addons on the same Mozilla account, which has no such issues. I have tried renaming the file called "xulstore.json" to "xulstore.old" or deleting it entirely, this didn't resolve the issue.

I've been using Thunderbird as my default e-mail app for many years without a problem. A few weeks ago I was automatically upgraded to 115.1 - 64-bit. It did not upload my Address Book and my Calendar. I had to reconstruct both apps.

Also....this edition will NOT copy items to my selected location...it just adds a shortcut to my deskto.

Plus....I previously listed that I can't get specific incoming e-mails to directly to its specific sub-folder.

I am totally disappointed with this current edition and would like to go back to my previous edition which was 111 or 112. Can this be done???

Thunderbird cannot read recovered emails in Outlook Inbox

While managing my Thunderbird Inbox, I inadvertantly transferred a chunk of Inbox messages received from my MS Office365 Outlook account into the trash. I went into Outlook on the WebApp and discovered that all of the inadvertantly deleted emails were found under recover deleted emails. So within Outlook I recovered all mails into the Inbox. So far, so good.

Now I have all the mails listed in the Inbox on Outlook. But when I open Thunderbird again, the recovered mails do not show up. It seems that Thunderbird does not fully synchronize the folder and the recovered emails are not downloaded. Instead, all mails are once again removed from the Outlook Inbox. The previously recovered mails disappear again from the inbox of OWA and I have to recover them all again.

I have already tried several fixes. Within Outlook, I created a new folder and moved the recovered Inbox mails to that folder. This was done in the hope that this folder will then sync properly with Thunderbird. Unfortunately no. The folder does not sync and as soon as Thunderbird is closed again, all mails are deleted again from the new folder on OWA.

I also deleted the Outlook account (including all stored data) and recreated the account in Thunderbird. Unfortunately, the same thing happens again. The recovered mails are not displayed in Thunderbird and after closing the program, the mails are deleted again in OWA and I have to recover them again. Finally I went so far as to uninstall Thunderbird completely from my computer and reinstalled the software. That did not fix the problem either.

I will also provide another observation: in the past when I have recovered individual emails the same behavior has occurred. Seems that when Outlook or Exchange places a deleted email into the recovery queue, there is a change in its identify such that TB now views it as a deleted message.

Any suggestions on how this can be fixed?

Best regards

I have been using Thunderbird for many years. In Thunderbird I found this message: "Login to server inbound att.net (username) failed." When I tried to send an email I got this message: "Sending of the message failed: Unable to authenticate the Outgoing Server (SMTP) outbound att.net. Please check the password and verify the "Authentication method" in "Account Settings." [outgoing server (SMTP)]

I went to att.net and I am still receiving emails. In fact, I received an email from Mozilla Support that allowed me to sign into Mozilla Support.

Please help so I can send outgoing emails from Thunderbird.

Sorry, not sure where to put it for the "topic".

Tried this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-user-data-missing-after-firefox-update

I see TWO profiles listed.

As the current one isn't what I want I try the second one "launch in new browser" - as said in the notes.

All that does is throw me back to the "welcome to Firefox" page.

No, it isn't the end of the world, but I had a few open windows/tabs. (By comparison to this machine which has A LOT of windows and tabs open)

They were useful/used/needed stuff.

It is a DIFFERENT MACHINE to this one. I haven't logged in here from the OTHER machine - may in the future if required/asked.

I'll try to leave well enough alone for now, but I do need that machine and this is a huge bump in the usual smooth flow of things.

BTW - just mentioning. MANY sites showed/suggested how to restore previous sessions but they all point to the HISTORY menu and then show RESTORE OLD SESSIONS.

Doesn't exist on either of my machines.

No data shared as this is NOT the machine with the problem.
